About Me

Ruben Brosbe has been working in NYC public schools since 2007. He entered NYC schools as a Cohort 14 Teaching Fellow. He has a masters from Fordham University in childhood education, an in education policy and management from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Ruben attended at the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a member of the Urban Scholars cohort. 

As an educator, Brosbe is passionate about culturally relevant, project-based learning. One of his favorite units of study was a 3rd grade writing unit responding to the lack of racial diversity in Scholastic's Book Club catalogs. In another ELA unit, his 5th graders studied the history and present of systemic racism. A group of his students presented their research to an audience of educators and community members at the Museum of the City of New York's Teaching Social Activism Conference. 

Brosbe's commitment to racially equitable schooling led him to join the Center for Racial Justice in Education (formerly Border Crossers) as a trainer in 2016. He has presented on anti-bias elementary education at the New York Collective of Radical Educators annual conference in 2015 and 2018. He is also a founding member of #TeachResistance, an online professional learning community of elementary educators.

Since 2016, Brosbe has also been hosting Teachable Moments, a live storytelling event featuring true classroom stories from current and former educators. Each event addresses a different theme such as "Beginnings," "Accidents Happen," and "Black Lives Matter."

Brosbe has been writing about his personal experiences in the classroom and broader education policy issues since 2007. His writing has been featured in The Washington Post, Chalkbeat, and Bright.
